RJ Bolian, the 14 year old boy who spent three years getting this library up and running—because his town had none—tells me that they are especially short of children's books. The library isn't officially open yet. But wouldn't it be great if, when it does open, at the first of the year, it is well-stocked, even overflowing, because of the generosity of poeple impressed with the inititaive of this young boy?
I'll send some as soon as I am back home. Right now I am in London, on vacation...and who, you might ask, goes on vacation to the most expensive city in the world, during the month that it is cold and rainy?
Well, that would be me. I love London, especially the theater here, and so we are spending a week in a small hotel (I am writing this in a fireplaced parlor)—once an elegant private home—and have theatre tickets almost every night. Everything IS expensive because of the very low value of the dollar. But you can find ways to keep costs down. Eating in a pub is both pleasant and cheap...a dinner for 7-8 pounds, for example. Cheaper than Boston. Food is not fabulous...but then "British Cuisine" has always been something of an oxymoron. Travel by tube is easy, convenient, and inexpensive (though I would not want to be handicapped. The London tube is not well-equppied for handicapped)...
